In Labelle's countersuit, she claims King bellowed profane and racial slurs at her before he attacked her bodyguards. In addition, she accuses the cadet of being intoxicated, staggering around outside the terminal, screaming obscenities and trying to enter the singer's limousine.
“King is shoved, and then punched. A third attacker, a woman, joined in, driving him back 12 to 15 feet, driving his head into a concrete pillar, causing a serious concussion and bleeding from the nose and mouth,” King’s lawyer, John Raley told FoxNews.com after releasing a video of the confrontation. “He was then taunted and kicked.
King's lawsuit and LaBelle's countersuit are asking for unspecified damages.
